My name is Matthew Ibrahim, and I am a pediatric speech language pathologist. Prior to becoming a speech-language pathologist, I received my undergraduate degree in speech and hearing science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and received my masters in speech, language, and learning from Northwestern University.

In addition to TherapyWorks, I work as a speech-language pathologist in the schools. I primarily work with receptive and expressive language disorders, pragmatic language disorders, speech sound disorders, as well as AAC communication. I have also had the opportunity to gain clinical experience working with fluency disorders as well as voice in my graduate schooling.

When I am not busy being a speech-language pathologist, I enjoy adventuring through the Chicago Metropolitan Area, traveling, hiking, biking, playing video games, and reading books.

Matthew is wonderful. He is very engaging with [my son]. [My son]  just said "he is a great teacher". He cannot wait for him to arrive. A real gem! -TherapyWorks Parent
Matthew is just really good!!!! -TherapyWorks Parent
Matthew is great. He’s positive, supportive, and provides excellent feedback.-TherapyWorks Parent
We have had an absolutely amazing experience with my daughter’s speech therapist, Matthew, at TherapyWorks. Matthew meets my daughter where she’s at, makes every interaction fun & supportive, confers with me to make sure I know the plan, & is just a joy for my daughter to work with. I thought going virtual would impede the process but Matthew hasn’t missed a beat with her. Working with TherapyWorks has been seamless. Thank you! -TherapyWorks Parent

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
